10 Movies You Can Shamelessly 'Ugly Cry' To

Sometimes a girl just needs to ugly cry and there are thousands of movies out there to help us do just that (looking at you Nicolas Sparks)! The ten movies listed below never fail to make me cry, whether it be out of jealousy (when will a boy ever serenade me?), sadness (sad kids make me cry) or happiness (true love is real right?). Enjoy, share and comment your perfect "ugly cry" movie! Plus, let me know if you've seen any of these and if a tear or forty have fallen because of them.

1. 10 Things I Hate About You

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F06%2F6360336326830121641474349650_10thingsihateabotuu.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=272&h=d8c178f1db421ca3b038c546e4b720b135b427b4f616b2c307f0f451e8b19fe6&size=980x&c=3447107519 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F06%252F6360336326830121641474349650_10thingsihateabotuu.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D272%26h%3Dd8c178f1db421ca3b038c546e4b720b135b427b4f616b2c307f0f451e8b19fe6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3447107519%22%7D" expand=1]

Aside from Heath Ledger's jaw dropping, head turning jawline and curly hair, this movie makes me ugly cry no matter the mood I'm in before I sit down to watch it. Beware that you'll be extremely jealous by the end of the movie.

2. To Kill A Mockingbird

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F06%2F636033632948779467-820600963_tkam.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=591&h=9bbbaa5957c0576c23d70a4e065669d70e94eded525e2d4ef2ad599062bc4142&size=980x&c=2937078640 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F06%252F636033632948779467-820600963_tkam.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D591%26h%3D9bbbaa5957c0576c23d70a4e065669d70e94eded525e2d4ef2ad599062bc4142%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2937078640%22%7D" expand=1]

We've all had to read this book in school, but many haven't seen the movie. This movie makes me "ugly cry" from sadness, pain and the innocence of children. This also is an easy watch because Atticus Finch is hooooooot.

3. Welcome to Me

This movie shines a light on mental illness, broken famlies and the corruption of media... sort of. This movie is as amazing as Kristin Wigg, who plays the main character.

4.The Pursuit of Happyness

This movie always sets me back to where I'm supposed to be for it shows that what we want isn't always what we need. Not to mention that it shows the impending doom of adulthood.. bum bum buuummmm.

6. The Boy in The Striped Pajamas

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F06%2F636033633882630472-1816791285_boy%2520in%2520the.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=800&h=9a332d1846b5f76b8ca74042cfc5892f898e48d1953112b63713db7629fd1784&size=980x&c=3737392860 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F06%252F636033633882630472-1816791285_boy%252520in%252520the.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D800%26h%3D9a332d1846b5f76b8ca74042cfc5892f898e48d1953112b63713db7629fd1784%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3737392860%22%7D" expand=1]

I mean.... just.... ya know?

7. Cyberbully

This movie shows the horrors that unfold everyday for many people all over the world. Although cyberbullying is not 100% preventable, you can help. Click here to find out more about what you can do to help stop cyberbullying.

Plus, if you're interested in watching another movie with similar plot lines and lessons, "A Girl Like Her" is magnificent as well and both are available on Netflix!

8. Short Term 12

There's so much to say about this movie, so I'll have to let it speak for itself.

9. Tinkerbell and the Never Beast

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F06%2F6360336346562225241796222435_tbatnb.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=519&h=c5fc471d8ba268f231ad8d6b64c702404c514aeb1f1888043a0e7f1819bd9b01&size=980x&c=2958003811 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F06%252F6360336346562225241796222435_tbatnb.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D519%26h%3Dc5fc471d8ba268f231ad8d6b64c702404c514aeb1f1888043a0e7f1819bd9b01%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2958003811%22%7D" expand=1]

Okay. So this may just be me, but I've been OBSESSED with Tinkerbell since I could walk, so naturally I watch all the new movies. They're such amazing movies with great lessons for kids. I'd warn you that the end of this one will have you in tears, but I think you've gotten that by now considering the title of this article.

10. A Walk to Remember

I'm just going to leave this one here for you.

Now go forth and binge-watch all of these and cry your eyes out with a pint (or two) of ice cream.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
